Les Alpes, April 23, 2009 - Les 2 Alpes is promoting itself as a place for beginners

Les 2 Alpes is promoting itself as a place for beginners to learn to ski or board in the summer as well as winter, this year.

“In summer, you can learn to ski on the glacier at Les 2 Alpes, at over 3,000 metres of altitude. The ski area has a gentle elevation difference and wide slopes, making it easy to learn to ski or snowboard. Beginners and families intermingle with professionals, ski clubs and international ski teams.” said a resort spokesperson.

Just like in winter, sports shops rent out skiing and snowboarding equipment. The ski schools are open too with around fifty instructors and 10 establishments offering classic skiing or snowboarding lessons and for the more advanced competition skiing, preparation for the French national skiing diploma, slalom, Freestyle, moguls and so on.

A lift pass providing access to the summer ski area and to tourist ski lifts (pedestrians and mountain bikes) is available for €32.50 a day for children aged 13 and over and adults to age 64.  Children aged 5 to 13 and adults over 65 years pay €26 Euros.  A half day pass is also available from 9.30am and a six day version is also available (Adult = €162.50 over 13 and under 65 or €130 for younger children and adults over 65.)

Ticket holders not only receive unlimited access to summer ski lifts and tourist lifts but also free entry to the swimming pool, ice rink, tennis, archery, driving range, water sports and Alpine slide and preferential rates for other activities.
